In short: If you stick to the resistant form of starch, you may feel full much longer...and be less inclined to eat between meals. Recommended sources of resistant starch carbs include sweet potatoes, beans, whole grain pasta, artichokes, yams, and quinoa. These carbs are only minimally digested, but the "full" feeling they deliver can go a long way toward helping you push away the plate.
According to Health magazine, the study of involved 4,451 participants. Participants who ate the most carbs (from whole grains, fruits and vegetables), remained slim throughout the duration, while the heaviest participants ate less starch resistant carbs.
I'm having a kind of "WELL DUH" moment here. Let's get this straight, people who ate whole grains and real vegetables lost weight. Am I missing something here???
I would imagine if people weren't eating whole grains and vegetables, they'd be eating white bread, white pasta and lot's of non-vegetables.
So isn't the lesson here just EAT MORE WHOLE GRAINS AND VEGETABLES?
